Jenn & Ryan planned a wedding for mid November knowing that with St.Louis weather as a factor – it could be snowing or it could be sunny. With many of their friends traveling to be there, they’d hoped the weather would cooperate. A private couple, they initially wanted a destination wedding with a private ceremony free from stress, so they hoped their day would go smoothly and without any mishaps. They couldn’t have know the weather would end up being in the high 60s with a warm southerly breeze, or that their wedding day would go so smoothly it was flawless. They couldn’t have known that guests would whisper to one another that it was the most amazing wedding they’d ever been to, or that even though their wedding wasn’t a private event for two that it would feel like they were the only people on that rooftop when they danced their first dance. What they did know that this day was meant to be, that this wasn’t the beginning of their bond because that was already stronger than any vows could depict. That the person standing before one another was their forever. Enjoy Jenn & Ryan’s official beginning to forever.
Loved Jenn’s personalized Chuck’s.They eye candy courtesy of Becky Huffman was jaw dropping at every turn. Jenn – you were a gorgeous bride. Laid back and in love looks good on ya!! And Ryan – despite your lack of fondness for having your photo done (although you never complained, but just silently endured it!), you are so darn good at it!!! So handsome!!Adorableness known as a First Glance! We had to endure some pretty massive gusts of wind during our photo time, but Jenn & Ryan didn’t have a care in the world. They just enjoyed the time before the ceremony and being in one another’s gaze and arms.Jenn and Ryan decided to not have a wedding party, so we were able to enjoy a stress free time before the ceremony to get the photos that matter the very most – photos of the gorgeous couple!
The view of the ceremony and reception site at The Hyatt Regency St.Louis is the best perspective of the Arch that exists. Gorgeous! Jenn & Ryan were fortunate enough to have the help of the extremely talented wedding planner, Kristin from Kristin Ashley Events. Her vision and professionalism are unsurpassed.By far one of our favorite first dances of all time.
